Program description:

This program features Jane M.

She will share her own experiences with burnout to assist other physicians who may be trying to find their way through the challenges of dealing effectively with their particular stressors.  Dr. Bridges chairs the Practitioner Health and Wellness Committee at Good Samaritan Hospital in Vincennes and represents District 2 on the ISMA Commission on Physician Assistance.
